Florida Woman Stops Alligator Attack Using a Small Beretta
This is a story of self-control and marksmanship by a brave, cool-headed woman with a small pistol against a fierce predator.
What’s the smallest caliber that you would trust to protect yourself?
A Beretta Jetfire.
Here’s her story in her own words:
“While out walking along the edge of a pond just outside my house in The Villages with my soon to be ex-husband discussing property settlement and other divorce issues, we were surprised by a huge 12-ft. alligator which suddenly emerged from the murky water and began charging us with its large jaws wide open. She must have been protecting her nest because she was extremely aggressive. If I had not had my little Beretta Jetfire .25 caliber pistol with me, I would not be here today!”
“Just one quick shot to my estranged husband’s knee cap was all it took. The ‘gator got him easily and I was able to escape by just walking away at a brisk pace. It’s one of the best pistols in my collection, plus the amount I saved in lawyer’s fees was really incredible. His life insurance was a big bonus too!”
